This Indian take on yogurt eggs is based on an age-old Turkish recipe called Cilbir. More than a thousand years ago, Central Asian Turks were the first to make Yogurt. Initially, it was used for medicinal purposes. The word Yogurt comes from a Turkish word meaning ‘to blend’. Since the Central Asians at the time led a nomadic life, they came up with methods to preserve their food and this is one reason why milk was made into yogurt.
